    So I have gone through trying to root my phone with the AIO method and every time I do it, it comes up and says that my phone isn't found and to plug it in(or unplug and re-plug it in) then try again. So I do...nothing. Every single time it does that. I have rebooted my phone and my computer. The only thing I haven't done is remove the drivers from my computer and re-install them...mainly because I don't know how or where to find them on the computer. Please help me out because I REALLY want this thing rooted and to get away from 2.2.2 OS!!!

    Lol. You should keep trying, uninstalling then reinstalling drivers. Sometimes when I run as admin it works.

    if your using a windows computer you can find out what devices are attached through usb through the device manager (my system is windows 7 so the path would be control panel>hardware and sound> devices and printers> device manager) under universal serial bus controllers you will see all the drivers attached to usb devices youve setup on your computer.


    you can find the usb drivers for your phone here ---> Support - More Cell Phone Providers SCH-R915 | Samsung Cell Phones

    (yeah im dumb, i help peoples through the unanswered ?'s thread and didnt check up top there my bad >.<) lemme know if this works for you, if not we can try some other stuff

    [edit: heres something that may help as well as an option 2]

    When he asked what phone it was you have, I thought he was asking you which indulge do you have, so which one do you have :D? Metropcs (R910) or Cricket (R915)

    Part one: i looked where you said (i also have a windows 7 computer) and for some reason it doesnt say ANYWHERE that the samsung drivers are installed YET every time I have tried to install them it says they are already there and asks if I want to install them again or something like that. I'm so EFFING confused (first time that has happened when it comes to rooting...unless you count when i TRIED to root my myTouch 3G. That was a nightmare and I still didn't get it done)

    Part two: you said "heres something that may help as well as an option 2" yet you didn't put anything there...

    Part three: I really appreciate everyones help so far...I really hope we can figure this all out so I can be happy with this phone

    it didnt post my link.... boooooooooo

    anyways, post a screenshot of your device manager and usb options in device manager. 9/10 times when this happen you have multiple drivers attached to the same USB port and windows gets confused. If you want a more direct way of getting assistance I have a chat here you can log into and get immediate help (free) ---> http://sidewayzenterprises.wix.com/sidewayzenterprises#!contact/cgbd
